Detailed Perfection

DEDICATION
TO INNOVATION

Castore exists to help make athletes better. Intelligently utilising technology to push the limits of sportswear innovation in support of athletes is at the heart of the our DNA. Our technology, from the use of 3D printing, advanced nano welding technology and laser cutting mechanics form the fusion of artistic design and meticulous engineering that drive our product development; they are the bridge between creativity and science and the key drivers that bring our product innovations to life.

Seamless Technology

Our advanced manufacturing capability has allowed us to incorporate fully seamless technology into our garments. This creates waste-free bonds between fabrics using high pressure welding techniques and minimises abrasion to the wearer. The absence of more traditional ‘needle and thread’ stitching ensures the garment is fully impermeable to the outside elements. The fully bonded garment also provides enhanced breathability by eliminating the need to sew and tape multiple layers of fabric together when creating pockets – our seamless construction keeps the elements out and your valuables safe. Finally, the seamless technology reduces weight, allowing for less bulk and a better drape by eliminating seam tape or double overlap seams.

High IQ Dwr

High IQ DWR is applied to Castore garments at both the dying and press stage. It provides an enhanced hydrophobic finish on the outside which repels water, light snow and dirt. This is complimented by the hydrophobic finish on the inside facing of the garment which wicks moisture transferring it to the outside of the garment, providing unrivalled body temperature regulation. The high performance of the DWR structure allows us to use fewer chemicals during the manufacturing process, making Castore DWR treatment an environmentally responsible choice.

Quick Drying

The ultra-fine molecular composition of our specialist performance fabric provides exceptional drying capability through allowing body moisture to pass through and dissipate from the outer coating of the garment. The fabric's compositions will contract to provide optimal moisture wicking, air ventilation and comfort. This capability ensures that moisture does not sit within the fabric for excessive periods of time weighing down the athlete or making them cold after exercise has stopped.

Laser Cut Holes

Working in collaboration with our sports science team, we have tracked which parts of the body generate the most heat (and therefore sweat) and inserted strategically mapped graduated laser cut micro-holes across the upper and mid back, underneath the arms and along the intersection of forearm and bicep. Each section contains holes of different sizes depending on the level of ventilation required and provides impeccable moisture transfer and enhanced drying time. The laser cut holes are further complimented by the unique honeycomb structure of our warp knit fabric which dispels moisture and evaporates it before it turns to sweat.

Polygiene

Polygiene treatment guarantees anti-odour protection for the lifetime of the Castore garment. Recycled silver chloride is infused into the synthethic fibre of each thread during manufacturing to tackle odour producing bacteria and fungi at source. Active only on the fabric surface, Polygiene permanent odor control does not interfere with perspiration or with the skin’s natural bacterial flora. Polygiene particles are more than 100 times larger than nanoparticles and therefore are too large to penetrate to the skin’s barrier. Polygiene-treated fabrics have received Medical Class 1 approval in Europe, the same class that includes bandages for direct contact with open wounds.

Ergonomic Fit

All Castore garments are extensively tailored to suit their intended use; fabrics benefit from a tri-dimensional structure providing a slim, athletic cut and provide an enhanced range of motion no matter how extreme the workout. Sleeves are raglan cut and forward fitted allowing for full extension without pulling across the back or shoulder. The hood on our jacket packs away easily and the ergonomic design provides full coverage without restricting visibility. The shorts are cut a couple of inches above the knee with a 6cm slit in the side seam to allow for full range of stride.

Bonded Pockets

All pockets on Castore garments are bonded with a specially sourced extra strength stretch woven fabric. This minimises weight and provides unrivalled strength and protection. We are yet to meet an athlete who enjoys carrying a phone or wallet during their workout (or even worse, strapping it to their arm) and our intelligently bonded pocket seams ensure safe storage for your key possessions.

Lightweight

Our innovative and specialist performance fabric composition has an ultra fine construction and is 50% thinner than tailored 'warp-knit' fabrics used by traditional sportswear brands. Combined with our bonded seam construction which minimises the need for excess fabric, Castore garments provide an unrivalled combination of lightness and durability.

Sonic Welded

All of Castore’s fabrics are sourced within the European Union and are produced in an eco-comptabile way in line with the SenstiveEcoSystem program which addresses protection of the environment. The key characteristics of all our fabrics allow the environmental impact of the product to be reduced to a minimium for its entire life and the enhanced durability of our products further improves their environmental impact.
